Initial Disclosure Document

What is an Initial Disclosure Document?

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the independent regulator of financial services. The FCA require us to provide you with a document called an 'Initial Disclosure Document'. This document provides information about us, the products we offer, the services we will provide, what we charge for our services, who regulates us and what to do if you have a complaint. 

Who regulates us?

The Motorcycle Centre Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Our FCA number is FRN 653083. You can check this on the FCA's website or by contacting the FCA on 0300 500 8082. 

Which service will we provide you with?

We offer a non-advised service, meaning we cannot give you advice or a recommendation on products. But in assessing your application, we will ask you for information to enable us to identify your needs and present a selection of products relevant to your requirements. You will then need to make your own choice about how to proceed. 
You will receive the pre-contract credit information which will detail the Terms & Conditions of the product you have chosen and advise you about any other fees and interest relating to the product. 

What products do we offer?

We offer a limited number of finance products from a selected panel of lenders. We will always supply all products options available to you and would advise you to review these to ensure you are satisfied that the product you have chosen meets your requirements. The Motorcycle Centre Limited is a credit broker, not a lender. 

What will you have to pay us for our services?

We do not charge a fee for the introduction to the finance provider; however, where we source the vehicle. For regulated agreements, we may receive a fixed commission calculated by the reference to the vehicle model, product or amount you borrow, for introducing you to the lender but this does not affect the interest charged on the agreement, all of which are set by the lender. 

All the lenders that we work with pay commissions at different rates, however, the commission received does not affect the amount you will pay under your finance agreement. Our aim is to secure finance for you at the lowest interest rate available from our panel of lenders. The amount of commission will be made available to you upon request.
